Ahh, fancams. I can’t imagine life without them. Sure, their audio quality and visuals aren’t up to par with professionally released videos (professionals would probably be out of jobs if they were), but they do help to make waiting for these professionally released products more bearable. A fancam from a recent Music Core performance boasting the full entirety of S.M. THE BALLAD’s ‘Hot Times‘ has been circulating the net, no doubt to the excitement of fans anticipating the album release in a few days. And hey, the quality’s not bad at all! More »

The new Korean show, “Oh! My School,” which is hilarious by the way, created interest with their latest episode, where it had a scene of SHINee’s Minho lying on a bed, trying to hide his body. Apparently, he was trying to change his shirt under the blanket, but Super Junior’s Eunhyuk attempted to remove the blanket, but failed the first try. As they they say if you fail, just try, try again. More »

Seo In Gook has released his music video for “Take,” his cover of “Take on Me” by A-ha. The cover is adorable, and I really do love it and his voice. The music video is adorable too. It’s a more modern version of the original, and it, of course, gets bonus points for starring So Ji Sub (and Jung So Min.) How adorable is In Gook when he is wearing those glasses and playing the keyboard! Anyway, check out his version and the original below!! Seo In Gook version: More »

YES! I’m back with another Korean lesson for you guys! Since I am super biased towards Super Junior’s Kyuhyun, why not show you another cute clip of him? This one is from Super Junior’s mini-drama series that was aired a long time ago pretty much right after Kyuhyun joined the group. I couldn’t bear myself watching this show because I heard that his acting was pretty bad (sorry Kyuhyun T^T). However, this short clip shows Kyuhyun singing (and kind of dancing) “Three Bears.” It’s one of the Korean songs for children! I used to sing this a lot when I was little, so watching his version of the song made me reminisce. Check it out below! More »


It was reported last month that Mike He will star in upcoming Taiwanese drama Mei Yue Jia You with Cyndi Wang, and now he is also in preparation for another drama as well! Well, I say the more the merrier when it comes to Mike He! Being that he is my all-time favorite actor, I just can’t get enough! But in this case I would say that I got a little too much. A trailer has now been unveiled for his newest drama, Sunny Happiness, and what I mean by being too much is that the trailer is thirty minutes long! More »

After being absent for two years in the acting business, Joe Cheng (It Started with a Kiss) is back in a new Taiwanese drama starring along side singer and award winning actress Amber Kuo. Channel X (or National Hero) will be different from typical romance dramas, focusing more on an action, thriller storyline, with the theme coming from the tagline “To find out the truth, what are you willing to sacrifice?” A few trailers have been released already, because not even done filming and this is already set to broadcast on December 5th! Amazing. With such a long wait for Love Buffet, it’s such a shock to hear a drama coming out so soon. More »
